News from Heritage Homes & Landmarks
Heritage Homes & Landmarks, a committee of the Petaluma Museum Association, believes that preserving and restoring Petaluma’s historic architecture adds inestimable value to our community. In odd-numbered years, it bestows Preservation Awards at an awards ceremony to honor owners of historic residences and commercial buildings for improving their property. It also honors individuals who have played a significant role in furthering the cause of preservation, as well as craftspeople whose restoration work is exemplary. This year HH&L is seeking nominations for consideration in any of the above categories. Look through your neighborhood and our historic downtown for restored buildings that have been finished between July 2015 and June 2017.
Holiday Parlor Tour
On December 3rd, HH&L will showcase four historic homes decorated for the holidays. There was no tour in 2016 because we were unable to find enough interested homeowners. If you own a vintage home and like to decorate for the holidays, please consider offering your home for the event, or ask a neighbor. HH&L contact information will be provided in the Museum’s next newsletter.
